The bundle site has been neglected by me for quite some time, actually almost two years since the Lovecraftian Bundle. The reason for this wasn’t only time problems with too many other things to cover, but simply because most of what they had to offer was the same old indie stuff, including dance 8-bit music, which became rather lame. So it’s nice to have some real classics in this bundle for a change.
Of course some casual titles can be found here as well as some less than stellar games, and while “build a kiss” sounds rather strange, it makes all sense if you know that the publisher of all these games is Kingstill International Software Services Ltd (or short KISS). You’d be hard pressed to find a common theme in its catalogue with all these different genres, but there are a few gems, one of them I already reviewed: the excellent Realms of the Haunting. So if you don’t mind the Steam platform, you can finally grab this game for just 1 Dollar.
There are also other games worth mentioning, and while I’m not familiar with most puzzle titles, I fondly remember playing 3D first-person adventure Normality that had a great sense of humor (beware of the current digital version of the game, though, as it’s not the American one with Corey Feldman as voice actor, which is kind of misleading because of the trailer). Then there’s Slipstream 5000, the PC equivalent of F-Zero or Wipeout that was pretty awesome, too. I don’t know about Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi, as it passed me by, but it sure looks like an excellent FPS in the same vein as Clive Barker’s Undying, although with less impressive graphics. Hostile Waters: Antaeus Rising and Gun Metal also look like some very good old-school arcade action games. If you’re more into experimental gaming, then the weird but wonderful Between Me and The Night could be something for you, although I haven’t tried it yet.
Indie games that look quite cool are Horizon Shift, interactive novel The 39 Steps, and mathematical puzzler True Bliss.
With only a very low price entry point and few cents to pay each time you add a new game to the bundle, there’s no better way than now to update your Steam library with some cool classic and indie titles than now. So be quick before the offer expires in less than one week.
